Why is it hard to believe that he isn't perfect? People make mistakes. Hell, he referred to himself in third person at the combine. That uh, had to have been something he knew not to have done, too. It's not like it's going to scare us away but yeah.
There's a very good chance it's real. As to why it was leaked? Who knows. Maybe one person told another who told another who blabbed to Schefter. I don't think it is "Smoke screen" though.
who is trying to say that he is perfect. the so called "nut huggers" have simply been couterpointing negative comments made with ones that aren't so negative. for the most part everyone who is on his bandwagon have admitted that there are some risks involved and there is some growth that needs to take place. laugh if you want, but they have been a good bit more balanced in the way they talk about cam than those who come into every thread and say things like, "there is no way we should draft cam" and "there are no franchise QBs in this draft" and things like that. we are open to other guys going at #1. can't say the same thing for the ones that get refered to as haters.
btw...i'm on 4 bandwagons right now as in there are 4 i would be completely cool with being the first pick, though newton is my favorite.
i'd be completely happy with newton, fairley, peterson, or green. overall i have faith that they will take the right person.
